    Question New Traxxas Lipos that fits ERBE?

    So, which of the batteries actually fits the ERBE?

    I like the 5000MAh. Got some Team orion 4700MAH 45C, but i'd really like to get traxxas ones at 99$ a pop. The team orion ones are about 140$ a piece..

    Anyone knows which will fit and which won't?

    To my knowledge, to get fully form factor batteries, there are only two options... Traxxas own or team orions...
    considering the price , try the Traxxas ones if perfect fit is a must...I run team orion and pleased about performance and like the perfect fit for many reasons.... but if reviews are fine on the new Traxxas Lipos..... which are probably another brand with a traxxas sticker....then they are worth looking at. But the price for the perfect fit is very high, as there are many much cheaper very good batteries out there

    My question wasn't clear i think..

    I was asking which of the traxxas brand lipos will fit the ERBE?

    I really doubt that the ones over 5000MAh will fit?

    Also, i own 2 Team orion Carbon molecular 4700MAH 45C. They fit like a dream!

    I don't think the OP asked what batteries fit in the ERBE, but what new traxxas lipos fit. I haven't seen any dimensions listed with them, would be nice if traxxas could give the spec and maybe what vehicles a specific battery fits.

    Traxxas makes it pretty easy to figure out which of their batts for in which model.

    Here's the list for the e-revo

    I think the battery lifetime warranty return is pretty darn good. You pay 50% of the cost after 1 year.

    That warranty is a good deal but only of the packs perform extremely well. I just ordered 4 gens ace 2s 5300mah packs for about $34 a piece plus $10 to ship to Canada. They have not come in yet, and they are my first sets so I don't know how well they perform yet. I know there are many people who run these batteries or similar Chinese ones and most people are happy. Unless the traxxas pack can perform significantly better it doesn't makes less economic sense. Of course the Chinese packs have no Trx plugs but soldering is not very hard, I'm 14 and o learnt how to solder in shop class at school. Even at 50% off after a year the packs from traxxas are still more money.
